Hustle is one of the few productions that has been able to combine sports, drama, and comedy. The production, which tells the story of a successful and ambitious coach who goes on a talent hunt, shows us that it is necessary to strive to succeed. In addition, the movie released on Netflix on June 3 brought us together with famous NBA players. And on top of that, the lead actor is Adam Sandler, whom we all know and love!

Here comes Ronaldo since childhood!
